About the album
Described by Gramophone as “a formidable Duo”, celebrated South-Americans virtuosi Karin Lechner and Sergio Tiempo invite you to discover Tango Rhapsody, their exciting new recording for Avanticlassic. For this project, the Duo Lechner Tiempo selected eight Tango pieces that were specially arranged or composed for them by the most famous Argentinean composers. You will find such beloved pieces as ‘La Muerte Del Angel’, ‘Adios Nonino’ and ‘The Secret in Their Eyes’ - the music theme from the Oscar winner movie ‘El secreto de sus ojos’.
Central to the album is the world premiere recording of the ‘Tango Rhapsody’: a concertante-theatrical piece dedicated to Karin Lechner and Sergio Tiempo and composed by one of the leading film composers of his generation : Federico Jusid. Premiered at the famous Progetto Martha Argerich festival, Lugano, this overtly passionate, virtuosic and cinematic work is not only meant to be played but includes also a scenic action. To allow you to get all the intensity emanating from the Tango Rhapsody, this limited edition contains a Bonus DVD featuring a complete performance filmed in Argentina.
